The Economy

by Clint Schnekloth — March 01, 2009

Let me make a confession. I have been apprehensive about addressing the current economic crisis/situation/correction in my preaching, writing, and teaching. I imagine this lack of confidence is influenced by my unfortunate lack of theological reflection on the complex economic currents of our time.

It will mean better international relations in a global community. I could go on...

The Soundtrack of Our Lives

by Clint Schnekloth — September 01, 2008

The other evening, as I was preparing our two-year-old son for bed, it occurred to me that the Gospel Canticle for Compline makes a great bedtime prayer. So I sang it for Samuel.
